Mr Bruce was Headmaster and I think Maurice Eggleshaw was still Deputy Head at Withens Lane.

The history of Wallasey Grammar School 1595-1995 by Maurice Eggleshaw MA is a superb piece of scholarship as well as being a fascinating read. I strongly recommend it to all OW's.
Peter Cochrane, like me a product of 1953, had Wallasey School send me a copy of Maurice Eggleshaw's history of the school.
This is fascinating reading for all kinds of reasons, but -not for the first time - I'm struck by old Maurice himself. What an amazing man he was! I remember vividly going to a chamber concert at the Philharmonic Hall in Liverpool, and see Maurice there with most of his first XV. He was an athlete, a mathematician, he knew all about medieval literature, he tootled away on the recorder, he brought himself a beautiful Grotrian-Steinweg piano, he knew everyone worth knowing on Merseyside, and - as those of us who went to his fruit-picking camps knew, he knew everyone in Worcestershire as well.
Ad then, to top it all off, he wrote a superbly researched history of the school.
How I wish that old Maurice was still with us, so that Peter Cochrane, Terry Darlow and I could take him out to a splendid dinner in return for the dinner he sent us three off to Evesham back in the summer of 595 or 56, as a reward for being the waiters at the dinner he gave every year for his Worcestershire friends. Looking back, I know that Doc Atkins taught me a lot about literature and Charlie Cannon taught me an immense amount of music, but Maurice, whom I never knew either as coach or teacher, taught me more about being a grown man than any of them.

Eheu fugaces, as Seedy Danson used to say, with a fleeting view of F L Allan, and praise for Eggleshaw, Fred Jarvis, NUT, was also a
As you must know Eggleshaw was appointed acting headmaster from January to July 1965.
This had been typed by Maurice Eggleshaw with detailed prompts, but was getting pretty dog-eared even by the time I left (1957).

And now there you all are - conjuring up the past with names of power - Eggleshaw, Cannon, Danson.
One of them, Clifford Gourley was Head Boy around 1910 - 1913 I think. ( His name does not appear in the list of Head Boys from 1877 to 1969 given in "The History of Wallasey Grammar School " by Maurice Eggleshaw - Ed .) How can I research this?
Little, geography, Eggleshaw, assistant head, Buckley, physics, Lochner, maths and how, I still have his equations impressed on my mind today. I can give any German a run for his money, even today.
It was really nostalgic to read names like Maurice Eggleshaw, C D Danson, Kate Silvey - sadly F L Allan did not seem to be mentioned.

For old boys of WGS, The History of Wallasey Grammar School 1595-1970 by Maurice Eggleshaw MA will be of great interest.
One of the many things I remember with pleasure was the nicknames awarded to virtually ALL the masters starting with the HEADMASTER (F L ALLEN "The BOSS"), 'CISSIE' HALES, "BILLY" BARKER, 'SEEDY' (C.D) DANSON, 'WORGLES' EGGLESHAW, 'SPUDDY' WIDLAKE are the ones I remember but ALL the masters had one!
Maurice was so pleased his new boys had beaten his old boys that he brought the beer for most of the evening!
